You may have spotted a few feathered out-of-towners that are sticking around Florida for winter.
Winter is a great time to look for uncommon bird species. Juncos and other sparrows and finches may be making a repeat appearance in Florida's yards this winter as many of them come back to the same exact location each year.
Keep your feeders nice and full and look for birds associated with “irruptions.” When natural winter food supplies are scarce in northern Canada, numerous bird species “irrupt,” migrating south in search of food.
The most common irruptive birds are Pine Siskins, Purple Finches, Common Redpolls and Evening and Pine Grosbeaks.
By offering the right food (in the right place), you can better your chances of attracting some of these birds.
Lovers of millet, you can attract Juncos to your Florida backyard habitat by offering WBU Deluxe Blend in a ground feeder or hopper feeder. They’re
persistent foragers and will dig deep into Florida's soil in search of seeds.
These “winter finches” are attracted to Finch Feeders filled with Nyjer® (thistle). You can also attract them to your Seed Tube Feeders by offering Supreme Blend.
If they’re visiting your Florida yard, be ready - they are hungry birds. For best results, offer Supreme Blend in a Hopper Feeder. Before the 1850s, Evening Grosbeaks were not commonly found east of the Rocky Mountains. Now, winter irruptions can occur across the country.
As you can see, Florida's feathered guests’ tastes and preferences vary, so it’s important to be prepared. Because before you know it, these out-of-towners will be just that - headed out of town!
Visit your local Wild Birds Unlimited in Clearwater/Safety Harbor, Florida this month, and we’ll make sure you have everything you need to keep Florida's wild birds happy and to attract these winter visitors!
